Interesting that you brought up chain lube ... it would be nice if that stuff came in a "travel size" u can keep under the seat when u need it. Is there such a thing? Because, I can't lug that big can around everywhere.

Thanks again Dave. I was hoping to get that pack of M&Ms I was eyeing up this morning at the gas station. Now it's possible. You're the bestest. Come by tomorrow for some more.

actually mort I did check SBTG and they were a little cheaper, not nearly worth the extra leg work Id have to do to save a couple bucks, then Id still have to get em mounted and balanced.


CP was the best option for me

Any chance you can get me a stator for an 01 Yami R6 within the next week or so? Every online site I've found is either out of stock or say it's going to be 2 weeks to get it even shipped out the door plus transit time. WTF?

God damn OEM is about $50 more than I paid a few weeks ago for the one in there now. I wonder if it was used or something and that's why it was bad??

Aftermarket is good with me. I can't respond to your pm from my BB but please order it from me.

Sure I'll loan ya some $$. How about I loan ya $129 and you pay me back with a stator? Fucker. Lol

While you're at it can you order me new bolts for the tank? The two that go on the top of the tank. I lost one when I was taking the tank off last night. D'oh.

Thanks!

I probably have a couple here. Just bring the other one when you pick up the stator and I can match it up.

Motorex makes a chainlube in a little 56ml bottle. We take it on the dirtbike with us. It's item number 3605-0001. Plus if you buy the larger 500ml bottle you can recharge the little one from it. It's a great product.

It was about a week ago using the option to send email through viewing your profile name on the forum. Maybe it got whacked out. Anyway just a bike question. Resent directly from my Gmail account to yours.

Ken, I used that cleaner you recommended, and it works really well. I'm very happy with it. Seeing my chain is dry as hell, I'll be using that chain lube today also.

Yeah use it lavishly, I need another bag of M&Ms. I like the S100 spray a lot. That is all I have used on my bikes since new.
